Décor Trend: Ghost Chairs

Sometimes things break. This morning, my trusty little laptop—the one that’s small and light enough to travel with—would not turn on. And when I walked into my building, three elevators were down, causing a major traffic jam in the lobby and a delay getting up to the office. It was cold, I was hungry and I really needed to get some work done on my train ride in this morning. It’s really frustrating when things don’t go as planned, but I took a deep breath and reminded myself that some (most) things are out of my control. It felt good and I am pretty proud of myself to exercising some calm when I easily could have stomped my foot and complained.

With that, I don’t have today’s intended post ready for you. I had a nice little idea floating in my head but nowhere to type it out. So sit tight. It’s coming.

Till then, let’s sit on something else: ghost chairs.

I would add ghost chairs to a traditional tablescape to shake things up! 

I was not a fan for a while. They are very modern and I typically save my lust fests for vintage stuff. Recently, though, ghost chairs are showing up in a lot of magazines and I am reconsidering my opinion. I really like the round back and regal arms of the Louis chair. What more, these acrylic beauties come in pink! Now, not only do I think they are a perfect way to add a modern touch to an event, but I really want one for my desk at home. They cost about $140 a pop. Naturally, that makes me want one even more. I’m souring craigslist for a deal!

What do you think about the ghost chair? Would you use them at your wedding?


  1. I'm slightly obsessed with ghost chairs- LOVE!!!

  2. Actually the real deal is A whopping $410. I've been scouring CL myself. :).
